  • A practiced eye for pixel misalignments, margin errors, and other visual details
  • Someone capable of writing and executing manual tests for mobile apps.
  • A self-starter who assumes responsibility for their work, accepts direction and feedback from co-workers and managers, and happily helps make anyone’s good idea a reality
  • Ability to think out of the box with a can-do attitude to get things done efficiently
  • Excellent communication skills with ability to articulate technical concepts in plain English

Experience and Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of Quality Engineering experience, understanding QA processes and methodologies
  • Python programming experience
  • Experience providing QA for mobile, web, and back-end services.
  • Experience conducting usability tests, and an ability to empathize with users’ unique perspectives.
